My big boy:

his new “lightning queen”, and his new do:

It’s been a very big week in this little man’s world! Toilet training has begun in earnest and I am happy to report that he is currently on his third day without an accident. He has also been dry for three nights. Not holding out any grave hope of this lasting – but I’ll take what I can get!

He also had a hair cut – courtesy of Cindy. And I took some photos to show her what we can do with his new style. He has had lots of comments about his new ‘big boy’ look. So this is him – hot hair and a little nappyless butt.

Times are a changin’…

sorry

I’ve been MIAfrom my blog for quite a while. It seems difficult to get time to post these days! We have been very busy. The school holidays came and went with plenty of activities to fill our days. Then first week back at school -we went to the snow. The kids had an absolute ball at Falls Creek. All my photos from these 4 days were taken on my iphone. I cannot be bothered uploading them. But they are on my instagrm feed if you are interested!

A few snaps of my darling twin girls to share today. I love winter shots! Something about the chill in the air and the wearing of bright coloured beanies maybe?

I don’t often have the time to photograph my bigger girls. But when I find the time (ten minutes today) I always love the shots I get! I try to take photos of them together at least every six months. Someone once asked why – I would continually put them together for images? Wouldn’t they prefer their own indentities? Well der! They have their own identities regardless! They are separate people. But it’s important to me and them to document their twinship. It’s special to them – and in the future I want them to remember that…

More scrapping photos to come soon I promise!

Oh Autumn:

It’s funny how busy I get as Winter approaches?? I think clients are busy doing things and activities when the weather is warmer? Nevermind..As proof by my lovely friends right here – photos in the cold can be magical!
I say it everytime guys – but your little family is so easy and fun to photograph. For three reasons:

a. you do as your told (hehehehehe!! I am a bossy britches behind the camera!)
b. you don’t pose.. Seriously the reason I get amazing images is because you are totally natural with Milly. You just love her and the camera – and me – do the rest!
c. Milly is the star! We let her do her thang – and look at the results!

Thanks guys mwah!

Model assistant:

This is what happens when you ask your divine four year old to sit for a ‘test shot’. I had a photoshoot at home this afternoon. The weather was poor and my

little star is only two. So I grabbed kitchen chairs and throw rugs and played around with the best light in the girls bedroom. I think Miss M proved the light and makeshift studio was pretty darn fine:


Gosh..I am bias..But she is just the most beautiful girl. I love her to pieces. These photos show her outer beauty – but she is so lovely on the inside too. kind to a fault..Generous…Outgoing and friendly..Open and honest with everyone..Funny and charming and energetic..Goodness..the energy from this darling little fliberty jib!
And this last one..More serene..A moment I captured..And I played with the editing for a little bit of fun!
 
Love you Moo

Beanies and leaves:

Just my boy in the leaves..Thought seeing as Autumn had passed us already – I had better get some snaps in the leaves before the turn to total mush in the wet of winter!

This was just a ten min shoot in the leaves of our neighbours nature strip yesterday. I literally carried the chair over and snapped away. A good tip for a quick shoot. Angles. If you cover most angles with your camera and keep moving you will get a great variety of shots. For Rylan I made sure I went from above..Down low..I placed him to the side in some shots, got in close to him and then I let him run around as well. I got some fab ones – and he was pretty much over the whole thing in ten min anyway – so perfect!

Asta la vista Autumn..
Helloooo Winter…

I really took these shots – just to capture that seriously cute beanie though!!

Family moments – instalment 2:

Here is the second lovely family I photographed on the same day.. But this time two little boys and one sweet girl..

 Hasn’t little henry got the most beautiful eyes..Lucky little man..
Gorgeous family Briana.. Thanks for letting me capture you in the the lovely late afternoon light…

Why I love what I do:

..because..I can whip out my camera at a family function for 15 min and capture gold:

The only speed bump in this golden group is that the divine Miss Milla was not there..She had exited stage left for another party – social butterfly that she is!!

Thanks friend:

And because it is cold – I need to feel the warmth – a couple of snaps taken by Tracey – who featured in the previous blog post….On the same day.. My little cutie babies.. Who were real troopers in the heat while I snapped Tracey and her boys..

Thanks Trace!
I love them!

summer lovin:

My bad..But these beautiful photos were taken in January in Yarrawonga. They feature our lovely friends and caravan park neighbours Tracey, Lucas and Jack. Looking at these yesterday while I was editing – knowing that on the day they were shot we had waited as long as we could for the days heat to cool to a mere 42degrees – WOW.
Right now it hardly seems possible as I sit snug in my mother’s day  ugg boots!!!

Happy Mothers day to all the Mum’s out there..
